Many Stories to tell; No time to write it

May. 18th, 2012 | 09:41 am

Yes, good I still have a journal. I've been thinking about writing more lately. I know I have a lot to say, but I don't really have time to write it down. And where...so many choices...Facebook, LiveJournal, Google....arrgh!

Lots of coffee today! Migraine left over from last night. Not the full blown headache but that on the verge of a migraine that I can't get rid of  feeling. Ugh I hope it goes away. I'm bored and restless today for some reason. I feel like I want to move somewhere. I'm tired of this limited area.

Jack fell asleep in 5 minutes last night,,,in his bed. Good progress!

Oh my! I've been slacking in the blog department again. I can't keep up!

This week is kind of blah. Work is steady...nothing too stressful. It's rainy and gloomy today...I hate that.
I was asked to speak at one of the local high schools's career class yesterday. THAT was interesting. Boy, I don't miss high school at all! I was nervous but I didnt need to be. I'm not sure how much I moved those students ahead but I hope I helped a little.

Ben and Jack have colds. Madison is experiencing growing pains in her knees. We got Jack a new mattress! He is almost to the point where DH can read him his story and just leave (instead of falling asleep in our room or having Tim stay in his room until he falls asleep.) DH is now off the bed, sitting on the floor. Tonight Tim will move closer to the door. We go three nights in one place and then change per the Sleep Lady. Seems to be working. Madison is now falling asleep on her own too but I need to get her to bed earlier. This is progress people. Everyone had been falling asleep in our bed (me included), then we would have to carry them to their beds. Two out...one to go. I'm not ready to move little pumpkin quite yet it seems LOL.

Okay, I'm off to pick up Madison!!!!

What a day! I sure wish I had an iphone to keep my schedule rolling!
I just received my latest issue of Working Mother...
When in the hell are they going to write the article that will help me get all the shit done each night that needs to be done...in 2 hours? I mean that is the article I need! Last night ee got home from soccer practice at 7pm. Madison needs to eat dinner, do her homework, read for 20 minutes, take a shower...and that is just her stuff! Oy vey!

I put Ben in his crib last night...he stayed until 11:30. I can't believe how much I got done just having him in there for 3.5 hours. But, when I went to bed...I missed him LOL!

Tomorrow afternoon, Jack has his surgery/x-ray followup. Please oh please let that arm be healing correctly!
Got a quick lunch time pedi today...yum!

Okay, back to work now!

Since my last post, Jack had to get his arm rebroken! Poor guy! Whew...what a week! He seems fine now...we're keeping him drugged up on tylenol with codeine...we got a big bottle too..good for the entire year..if we need it. I dont have much else to say. Ben is doing well, he had the rest of his 6 months shots last week and he didnt have any reaction to them...so that is good. Just going into another weekend of gymnastics and soccer! I hope we can all get along this weekend.

I'm sleepy. Good Night!

Had a wacked weekend. I took the boys to TRU for a Thomas the Train event. I was hoping for more but it was okay. Jack liked the new Thomas car I bought for him...and I enjoyed the challenged of trying to corral the baby and Jack without losing Jack and without running the stoller into anything or anyone...keeping Ben safe in the process! Exhilarating really! Sunday Madison had her third soccer game! They lost 2-0 but Madison played really well...had two great blocks as goalie! It was hotter than hot too.
My friend, since grade 7, was in town, we had great visit too! Here's to a good week!

Jack had a wonderful morning at preschool! We didnt torture him my making him ride the bus...Tim took him and I picked him up. That scenario is not easy. I'm really hoping he will become brave enough to ride the bus. Its at least a 20 minute drive from my work to school, then another 10-15 to drop him at daycare and then another 15 back to work. And I was late back to work today because I left too early. It will okay for now but in the winter...add another 30-45 mintues for snow and we have a problem. Oh well the important thing is that he actually went in today..without me and came out smiling!

Today Alexander would be 4 years old. I can't believe it. His EDD was Sept 10, 2006. My heart is heavier than usual today but I will get through it. I mean I think of him every day....but on this day and on April 26...its just that much harder. Each year on these dates I do something to remember him.

I had big plans to make a cake, but that didn't work out so I went to the store at lunch to pick one out. I walked by the candle options and then arrived at the case full of premade cake options. I just stood there for awhile trying to decide. At that momen,t of course, Breathe (2AM) by Anna Nalick had to come on over the sound system...which makes me sad when I hear it anyway. Talk about lousy timing.
Song or no song, the emotional wave hit me like a door.  I'm looking at birthday cakes for my 4 year old who isnt here. But I have to do this. Its not even a big thing. Tonight a little cake for dessert in memory of my sweet angel.
Just breathe

Did great on my diet for awhile and then slacked off. My sister sent me her bridesmaid dress options today......

I need to get back on the horse! No carbs! Non of the designs she sent will look good on a moose!

Since my last post...
Jack broke him arm...now he has a cast
Ben had a bug...now he is better
Madison has had the worst attitude...this morning was better
I had a flu like bug...now I am better
Tim is good.
That is the update. I'm off to pick up Madison from school now. I hope we have a good night.
good night all!

Diet Day 4. I need to work  and eat breakfast yet but still sticking to my plan.
This morning went pretty well! Everyone behaved.

Tonight Madison has her first girlscout meeting ...she is missing soccer practice for it and I'm not happy about that. But the coach had to change the practice and I don't really have a choice. Its just this one week, hopefully he won't have conflicts often.

I have a lot to do today..pick up my contacts, return items to target (clothes that Madison liked but now she has changed her mind), post Ben's car seat and base on craigslist, call school transportation for Jack (who starts preschool next week) and call Tippy to make arrangements for Callie's reception! Okay, now that I have a list...I need to go do it!
